    David Roosevelt is the grandson of Franklin Delano and Eleanor Roosevelt, and son of the late Elliott Roosevelt.

He was twice appointed as a Federal Commissioner on the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial Commission in Washington, DC, once by President George Bush in 1991 and again by President Clinton in 1993.

He is the author of the biography, Grandmere: A Personal History of Eleanor Roosevelt. David spent a significant portion of his youth with Eleanor and says his book was a non-scholarly, intimate look at his grandmother and her life, and his days with her.
